Aug 6th 2015 at 11:07 AM

Betting is something that has gained popularity at a really fast pace. Just a decade ago betting was limited to a very small number of people. Most of them used to bet through betting companies which allowed them to place bets through their shops or websites which were accessible to a very small number of people. As the internet went mobile and a huge number of people came online and they had straight access to all the betting websites. Now almost everyone wants to bet on their favorite sports and the people who are placing bets for the first time are the ones from whom the betting companies make their cash.

Newcomers need to stick to some of the most basic betting strategies before moving further, trying to move at fast pace in betting will result in reduction of one’s account balance. Here are some strategies that you must try your luck as a newcomer:

Back & Lay

Back & Lay is the most basic from of betting. It consists of two parts Back and Lay. Back betting means you place your bet on a certain result of a game. While Lay means placing a bet on the opposite result to the back. This betting strategy is the simplest and most of the bets are placed on this and people make some handsome cash from these bets.

Double Chance

This strategy is one of the most successful betting strategies. It is highly implied in games where one could get more than two results such as cricket and football where the results could be Win, Lose and Draw. One could place bets on any of the two results that are most likely. This will make sure that one does not lose all the money and recover some of it from either of the two bets.


Handicap is a bit technical betting strategy. In handicap one team is given a lead by the bookmaker’s before the match starts. This lead stays with the team or player for the entire game. As soon as the match ends this lead is subtracted from the final score and the winners of the bets are decided on the bases of the score that’s left behind.


No matter which strategy you follow you will need to do a bit of homework before placing a sporting bet. So to make sure that you male cash from your starting bets just stick to the basics and place your sporting bet carefully!
